Lindsay Bridgeman, BSc, Physiotherapist
Lindsay is the owner of Cayman Physiotherapy Ltd. and qualified as a chartered physiotherapist in 1986 from The Queen’s College, Glasgow, Scotland. She then ventured south to work as a rotational physiotherapist at Arrowe Park Hospital, Wirral, England. Lindsay’s love of travel then took her abroad to Canada where she worked as a physiotherapist at Toronto General Hospital.
Lindsay arrived in the Cayman Islands in 1989 continuing to work as a physiotherapist and in 1993 set up Cayman Physiotherapy Ltd. initially as a single therapist practice. The clinic has evolved into a busy facility with a team of nine physiotherapists, a massage therapist, 2 acupuncturists and a clinical Pilate’s instructor on staff.
Lindsay splits her time between managing the clinic and treating patients. She is trained in a wide range of manual therapy techniques, exercise therapy, sports medicine as well as using acupuncture and trigger point needling as an adjunct to physiotherapy.
Lindsay coordinates the women’s health program at Cayman Physiotherapy and has undertaken specialist training for the treatment of incontinence, pelvic and pregnancy-related pain. This includes treatment for urinary incontinence ( both stress and urgency), pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic pain, and pain in the pelvic girdle and back related to pregnancy.
Keeping up to date with current trends in physiotherapy is very important to Lindsay and she either attends or organises a specialised continuing education course every year. Lindsay sits on the board of the Cayman Islands Council for Professionals Allied to Medicine.
Having spent the past 30 years in the Cayman Islands, Lindsay is happy to call the Cayman Islands home and is very settled here with her husband David and two grown-up children. In her spare time, she is an active member of the Cayman Islands squash and tennis clubs and also enjoys an occasional round of golf.
